The trail in to the waterfall is all downhill, so the hike out is all uphill. The trail starts out as an old jeep trail and turns into a narrow path. The destination is the waterfall. The waterfall is unique in that the water has worn through the ledge and plummets through a round hole. The trail in to the water fall is all down hill, so the hike out is all up hill. The trail starts out as an old jeep trail and turns into a narrow path. The destination is the water fall. The water fallis unique in that the water has worn through the ledge and plummets through a round hole instead of over the ledge. Thus the name Glory Hole. Always best to hike in the spring or late fall when water is flowing. Well worth the hike. use extreme caution approaching the water fall from the top
easy parking for this trail along the side of road.
Not a very good hike at the end of October as there was no water
the hike in is worth it, the hike out is a lot of up hill, but really a great hike
Great place! Very unique.
Enjoyable hike down to a unique waterfall. Well maintained trail that is on the easier end of "moderate".
It was a fun and easy trail, kid friendly (my 10 yr son and 2 yr nephew). Easily to be missed if your not paying attention or there is no cars parked in the designated area for parking. It was a unique waterfall glad we did it.
When the water is flowing, this place is amazing! Good hike to a not so well known place.
Nice area. Tough hike out because it is uphill most of the way. Creek and glory hole is just trickling right now because we haven't had rain in a while.
Fun trail. Little hard to see the trailhead along the road. Watch for the worn out parking.
Amazing place!! Make sure it's rained heavy recently if you want to see full glory. The hike down is great and simple, back is a bit more challenging, but still not too bad. You can drive down a little ways if you have 4wheel. I'll go back for sure!!
The waterfall at the end was beautiful, especially going down into the cave to see it. It had just rained so the trail was a lot of mud and the stones were slippery. It was uphill the way back but worth it! Luckily a few cars were parked near the trailhead because it's not marked.
Was a good stroll but wasn't a lot to see till the end.
Love it! Was a great shorter trip. Wondered pretty far down the side of the bluff to the right. Lots of fauna and flora to observe.
